big shoes to follow. the party respects women across america. that is why it gives me great pleasure to reward one of the greatest females with the beacon award. it was created to give an award to an outstanding democrat who exemplifies the ideals and values. in 2009, it was awarded to jimmy carter. it went to state senator and the majority leader. last year's award went to tom harkin. this year's award has gone to secretary hillary clinton. [applause] i have with me on stage some north iowa democratic women with me hereto except the award on senator clinton -- secretary clinton's behalf. on january 21, 2009, hillary rodham clinton was sworn in as secretary of the united states. secretary clinton joined the state department after nearly four decades as an advocate, attorney, first lady, and senator. she attended local public schools before graduating from wellesley college, where she met bill clinton. she married bill clinton and became a successful attorney while also raising chelsea. she was an assistant professor at the university of arkansas law school, and she was appointed by j
coverage of what is happening in the world as well as what is happening in america. from here is a call next alabama. welcome. walter, are you there? you're on the air. i had a brother served in vietnam. realize like going into a rack them of the women, and putting our boys over there and women and the people here were calling in criticizing. if they would take a gun and do something like that, it is different. if it were not for our armed forces, we would be controlled by other countries. just like in the united states, these folk who rob banks or stuff and this that going on all the time. ain't none of us perfect, but i think our soldiers are doing a good job. media,o you think the the usb then, does a good job of covering our efforts in afghanistan and before that to my iraq? host: i sure do. i sure do.ler: host: go ahead. i am a former korean, vietnam veteran, and to make -- to me, the meeting is you have two efferent sides of the story from different angles. i tend to go to the foreign media to see what they think of us. at the same time, i think the lady talked about looking at wh
people. also white people, and to know that a nation such as america and the reason that i struggle with it so hard and i grapple with it so hard is because i really believe in the potential of this country. and this country has not realized its potential, it has not even begun to scratch the surface and the humanities. and because i do feel strongly about that potential and because of the kind of inheritance i've had, it was necessary for may to be this. >> and we are very happy to have harry belafonte joining us now on the program today from new york. mr. belafonte, looking back, what do you think about the promise of dr. king's dream, of everything you worked for? what has been achieved? what still need to bes to be ac? >> i do believe that that moment was filled with dreams of over two centuries of expectation that came from the african-american community. and a big part of the american community. we have enjoyed a great journey in achieving the victories that we did. now today i think that we are under a great threat of having those victories reversed. i think there's a new con
to the role that america has played in that region for a long time. now, it's important that people know that, to get your point, because it's important for people understand what we're doing, why we're doing it, to understand first of all that our alliances are strong and we stand behind our alliances. second, that we are not picking a fight with anyone. we are not trying to militarize a situation there. we would like what has been happening in decades past to keep going. democracy has been spreading across -- prosperity has been spreading to a huge economic and political development and a part of world without any conflict at all. so that's the fight that we have on the pivot and that's why we're doing it and that's why we're saying what we're doing. nobody it's the wrong idea by the duty provided the of why we're doing it spent we only had a couple of minutes left and mechanical of our time because the to the invoke year is they put us on planes and send us back. we will take two questions. kimberly and no here. we'll take a cu key and then you can pick which one you're answering. >> you m
're feeling dissed. they're wonder yg he's treating america so roughly. my own sense of it we were discussing before is that i think putin is doing this because he can. because he judges us now to be a country in some difficulties, in some trouble. it's not all his relationship with obama. it's his sense of who america is, and it's his 50-year-old resentment for what america has been. so i think we're in a rough time, and my own sense is if you make america stronger, you will make it stronger in the world and people will be less eager to snub you in colorful ways. >> schieffer: but, you know, david this is almost like-- it's kind of following a kind of high school scenario here. here you have putin sort of-- sort of taking on the role of hugo chavez. i mean, nobody thought venezuela posed any kind of threat to the united states, but shavedz apparently thought he could really make his place in the world by poking his finger in the eye of the giant. and it seems like russia which doesn't have much going now except oil revenues, and of course they do have nuclear weapons -- i don't think anybody
-asaad must leave office. so where is america's credibility? >> reporter: the white house says the administration intends to declassify and release intelligence information. why the white house believes it was a chemical attack. bill: will he seek congressional authority before a military strike? >> reporter: the white house says it's consulting with congress as the war powers act requires. kings out of town for recess but one congressman says the president should do mow. he says the president should be making the case to the american public and his administration should come to congress to explain their plans. the consequences are too great for congress to be brushed aside. the president has been speaking with foreign leaders including british prime minister david cameron. they discussed possible consequences from the international community to syria. martha: we are told that the military assets are already in place when and if president obama does decide to order a strike. here is defense secretary chuck hagel speaking about this to the bbc. >> leaders all over the world said
to america's calculus vis-a-vis syria right now? >> i mean, let me be blunt. if the united states decides to strike against syria, this would be an american operation. america would take ownership of this particular operation. american operation without a u.n. security council resolution, a u.s. operation without the final report by the u.n. inspectors, a u.s. operation without a broadly based coalition. france said it would join the united states. turkey and saudi arabia and qatar. but they have been the spearhead of the fight against the assad regime. thus, the united states would be joining the anti-assad regime. the reality is regardless of how you -- we try to really explain the american operation, few in the region -- and i'm talking about the middle east and the muslim world -- would see this operation as an american operation. regardless of how important the u.s. evidence is, and it's very powerful evidence against the assad regime, the consequences, i think, would be very pivotal, both for the region and i think for america's interests in that part of the world. >> professor, yes
to the credible in the future interests of the united states of america and our allies. it matters, because a lot of other countries whose policy is challenged these international norms are watching. they are watching. they want to see whether the united states and our friends mean what we say. >> apparently not. defense secretary hague p spokesman george little tweeted the following. "support decision on congressional authorization for use of force in syria. agrees we cannot turn blind eye to syrian, cw, chemical weapons use, already there are indications that assad is moving around the delivery systems for those chemical weapons. he will be hiding them in civilian areas. they are mobile. it is going to make targeting very difficult in the next ten days when a decision is finally taken. >> that brings me to my next question for you, jennifer. talking about targeting become more difficult. the effectiveness of any eventual strike. how will this delay in terms of what the speng saying actually affect that? >> well, i'm told from pentagon officials it will make it more complex but is still manageab

transparent reforms to the constitution and democratic elections of a parliament and a president. america cannot determine the future of egypt. that's a task for the egyptian people. we don't take sides with any particular party or political figure. i know it's tempting inside of egypt to blame the united states or the west or some other outside actor for what's gone wrong. we've been blamed by supporters of morsi; we've been blamed by the other side as if we are supporters of morsi. that kind of approach will do nothing to help egyptians achieve the future that they deserve. we want egypt to succeed. we want a peaceful, democratic, prosperous egypt. that's our interest. but to achieve that, the egyptians are going to have to do the work. i want to be clear that america wants to be a partner in the egyptian people's pursuit of a better future. and we are guided by our national interest in this long- standing relationship. but our partnership must also advance the principles that we believe in and that so many egyptians have sacrificed for these last several years, no matter what party or
of a better term, to the american people? do the american people deserve an explanation before america decides to strike militarily and, two, should the president get congressional approval? >> yes. i think for sure the president has and needs to do more to address the american people about this and to be very specific -- and i haven't heard a lot of discussion about this. our national security interests are at stake for several reasons. one of the basic reasons is when the iranian regime and hezbollah, two entities, one a terrorist organization, one an actual country, the regime in iran, not only are plotting against us every day and want to bring us harm and we know that for sure, but they've done so in the past, especially in the case of hezbollah. the iranians tried to blow up a restaurant in washington, d.c., that would kill a lot of americans. so i think our national security interests are at stake. i think the president has and will make that clear. but in terms of a long debate in congress, simply to respond to a chemical weapons attack i think would take too long. we should have a lon
